John Starks liked his performance better the second time around. Starks shook off the bad memory of his last game at the Summit, scoring 22 points and shooting 9-for-17 from the field to lead the New York Knicks past Houston, 93-77, last night in a rematch of the NBA finals. Starks was only 2-of-18 from the field last June 22 when the Rockets beat the Knicks 90-84 in Game 7 of the championship series, but he was on target in the rematch, going 3-of-3 from three-point range and leading the Knicks in scoring.

Former heavyweight champion Mike Tyson yesterday promised a more decisive victory over Canadian Donovan "Razor" Ruddock when the two meet for a rematch in Las Vegas on June 28. Their March 18 bout ended in a controversial Tyson victory when referee Richard Steele stopped the fight in the seventh round even though it appeared Ruddock was fully able to continue. Ruddock's camp bitterly argued that the fight should have continued and immediately demanded a rematch, while Tyson complained he was denied a chance to knock the Canadian out. Tyson said he would not let a second chance slip away.

BERNARD HOPKINS will return to the ring for his rematch with Chad Dawson on April 28 in Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. "Attn: fanz & of course HATERZ April 28 AC im getting my revenge/victory on @OfficialBadChad 4 that BS," Hopkins tweeted yesterday. A Hopkins spokeswoman later confirmed the bout. Their first meeting, on Oct. 15 in Los Angeles' Staples Center, was originally declared a second-round technical-knockout victory for Dawson by referee Pat Russell. It was later changed to a no-contest by the California State Athletic Commission, which determined that Hopkins' shoulder injury, which prevented him from continuing, was the result of a foul after he was lifted and thrown down by Dawson (30-1, 17 KOs)

Rematches are all that remain on the Eagles' schedule. It's Dallas Sunday in the regular-season home finale at Lincoln Financial Field, Washington six days later at FedEx Field, and the New York Giants in the final regular-season game Dec. 28 at MetLife Stadium. The Eagles beat all three opponents the first time they faced them this season and are 7-2 in NFC East games under coach Chip Kelly. The one thing we really do not know about Kelly, however, is how well he handles these rematch games.

Upper Merion wanted to put its high hopes for this season to an early test. So why not a rematch with the team that dropped it from last season's PIAA playoffs? Tony Funsten took his Vikings to Glen Mills for the rematch on Saturday night. He wanted a test; he got an adventure in a 65-58 loss. "We missed too many layups and foul shots, a lot of close-in shots," he said. "But against that team, every close-in shot is an adventure because they're so good, and big. " The Vikings (1-1 - Friday they beat Haverford, 78-60)

Sestak could defeat Toomey in a rematch Joe Sestak came very close to beating Pat Toomey for one of Pennsylvania's U.S. Senate seats in 2010, securing 49 percent of the vote to Toomey's 51 percent. ("Debate can impact Super Tuesday," Monday). This time, Toomey has a voting record, from which he will try very hard to run but cannot hide, so that the retired admiral stands an excellent chance of getting more than 50 percent. This is an election in which national security issues will matter a great deal, and Sestak has better credentials than anyone in the Senate, much less in the Democratic primary race.

Temple and Cincinnati won't meet in men's basketball this season. Temple knocked off the then-No. 1 Bearcats in Cincinnati last season and a rematch was scheduled for January 2001 in Philadelphia. But Cincinnati postponed the trip for a year, Temple announced yesterday, because of a scheduling conflict. According to Cincinnati athletic director Bob Goin, when the Bearcats agreed to play in this season's Puerto Rico Holiday Classic, those games were exempted from the NCAA maximum of 28. But the current rule mandates that the tournament games count against the maximum and Cincinnati had to drop two opponents from the current schedule.

The story of Clearview girls' lacrosse is twofold. There is luck and there is talent. Luck rarely works in Clearview's favor. Once again, the injury bug paid the team a visit this season, and the Pioneers had to overcome the loss of some of their best players and leaders. For Clearview, this is just history repeating itself. But every year when playoff brackets start to narrow, Clearview is still playing lacrosse. That's where talent comes in. The fourth-seeded Pioneers are set to take on top-seeded Shawnee Thursday in the semifinal round of the South Jersey Group 4 playoffs.

IT'S QUITE a long way from Honolulu to Houston and from Dec. 7 to April 2. That day in December, Oklahoma beat Villanova, 78-55. It could be a matchup problem as the Sooners are the rare team that can trot out a guard line as good as the Wildcats' and they have a genuine college superstar in Buddy Hield. More likely, it was just circumstance on Pearl Harbor Day and Saturday's Final Four game will play out much differently. OU led that game by 15-3 after 5 minutes. The Wildcats came back to tie it at 26 in the first half, but then got overwhelmed in the second half, 46-29.

Temple is playing its best basketball of the season and there is no doubt that a turning point came during a 55-53 win at then-No. 23 Connecticut on Jan. 5. Including that game, the Owls have won eight of their last 10. More important, that win came after Temple's worst performance of the season, a 77-50 drubbing by visiting Houston on Jan. 2. Temple now has a huge rematch with UConn in an American Athletic Conference game at 7 p.m. Thursday...

PROVIDENCE, R.I. - It has been a while since Villanova exhibited the kind of sharp offensive play that it showed in a 25-point victory over Creighton earlier this week, and coach Jay Wright hopes a trend is beginning. The third-ranked Wildcats (19-3, 9-1 Big East) could use a similar performance on Saturday at a sold-out Dunkin' Donuts Center when they take on No. 11 Providence (18-5, 6-4) for the second time in 14 days, seeking to avenge an 82-76 overtime loss to the Friars on Jan. 24 at the Wells Fargo Center.

GROUNDHOG DAY came early for Michael "Danger" Castro when he was arrested again Wednesday for the murder of a 77-year-old man. Castro, 34, of Pemberton Township, Burlington County, had been arrested in 2013 for the Feb. 5, 2012, shooting death of John Kingsbury in rural Mullica Township, Atlantic County. Authorities contended that Castro, a Muay Thai kickboxer, had planned to rob Kingsbury's residence, which belonged to Castro's business partner, Glenn Kingsbury, the victim's son. Castro, authorities said, encountered the older man and put two bullets in John Kingsbury's head.

LAST WEDNESDAY, Jerad Eickhoff gave up three runs in the first inning against the Mets. When he returned to the dugout, he pondered what he would have changed about his performance. Of his 40 pitches in the inning, Eickhoff could only think of one that he would like to do over. "I sat there and said, honestly, I'd probably take back one pitch, and that was the double to [Michael] Cuddyer," said Eickhoff, the 25-year-old righthander acquired from Texas in the Cole Hamels trade.

Now comes the hard part for the Union. They earned a second consecutive trip to the U.S. Open Cup final with a 1-0 win over the visiting Chicago Fire on Wednesday, but they'll return to Major League Soccer duties against the same team. And for both clubs, the situation isn't very pretty. The Union (6-13-5) will host the Fire (6-12-4) on Sunday night at PPL Park. The Fire are in last place in the 10-team Eastern Conference but have two games in hand over the ninth-place Union.

ONE-HUNDRED-twenty-eight days ago. That's when Temple pulled off its 82-75 win over Louisiana Tech in its second game of the season. It seems like a short amount of time, but so much has changed since then for the Owls, who prepare to face the Bulldogs again tonight at the Liacouras Center, with a trip to Madison Square Garden in the NIT's semifinals against Miami going to the victor. "It's so long ago. We're different," Temple coach Fran Dunphy said at yesterday's shootaround, looking back at his team's previous matchup with Louisiana Tech.
